Whether you like it or not, car companies are now electrifying their pickup trucks. We saw Ford announce its upcoming Project T3 a couple of weeks back. And now, after a Super Bowl reveal in February, Ram has come back with some new specs for its first-ever electric pickup truck.
Debuting in-person at the New York International Auto Show, the Ram 1500 REV will be ready for the 2025 production year and boasts some impressive numbers. Sporting a new STLA Frame architecture with a body-on-frame design, the truck will be available with two battery options: the 168kWh pack and the larger 229kWh pack — with 350 miles and a remarkable 500 miles of range, respectively. That’s enough to get you from New York City to Toronto on a single charge! There’s also an 800-volt DC fast charge that can give you around 110 miles of extra range in about 10 minutes. If that’s somehow not sufficient for you, Ram promises a future 1500 REV XR model that will feature a “class-shattering range.”
Remember, the standard Ram 1500 is already a more-than-capable pickup truck with a payload upwards of 2,000lbs. However, the electrified 1500 REV claims it can haul up to a whopping 2,700lbs, with a towing capability of 14,000lbs thanks to a powertrain that delivers 654hp and 620lb.ft of torque. Likewise, the truck can do 0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds. On-site powering capabilities will give you 7.2kW out of the rear and 3.6kW out of the 15-cubic-foot frunk. Interior options include carbon fiber trims and leather material, with a 14.5-inch touchscreen and a 10.25-inch passenger screen. For the top-shelf Tungsten package, the vehicle will feature 23 speakers from Klipsch and dual wireless chargers.
The Ram 1500 REV won’t go on sale until 2024, with pricing still up in the air. Until then, you can learn more about the new pickup truck on Ram’s website.
